Innovative, multi environment Roku® Keata chair unveiled by Teal

Award winning healthcare solutions provider Teal LifeCare has unveiled an innovative multi-use chair created by international furniture designer Ben Grafton.

A new addition to the Roku® family, Roku® Keata is a durable, rotationally moulded chair and matching table collection with contemporary, progressive styling, designed for multi-environment use.

‘Roku®’, Japanese for ‘six’ refers to the number of applicable environments - which includes dining, bedroom, reception, lounge, high security environments and outdoor. A compact footprint also means it easily passes through a doorway or tucks under a desk or dining table.

Roku was created by London based product designer Ben Grafton, and adds to his extensive list of groundbreaking, award winning healthcare seating designs. 

“The challenge was to create a versatile, compact chair with progressive styling and visual appeal.  With its sculpted, soft form, Roku® Keata is designed for use in dining, bedroom, reception and outdoor areas - robust enough to meet the requirements of a wide range of environments including challenging behaviour.”

Model options are available, including upholstered seat and back pad options, along with matching multi-use table, available in six new colours – Heather, Azure, Saffron, Ocean, Sunset and Fern.

For hygiene control Roku has excellent chemical resistance with smooth, sealed, wipe clean surfaces.

For use in extreme environments Roku® Keata can be weighted (up to 60kg) to limit misuse while maximising safety. Constructed from one piece medium density polyethylene it provides excellent impact strength and durability, while flowing design makes Roku® Keata difficult to pick up, with rounded edges and no sharp corners or areas for concealment.
